Portal 2

- PS3

Gaming has come a long way since the times of Counter-Strike, and Portal 2 just adds to that table of massive creations and masterpieces. The Predecessor of the original mind boggling FPS puzzle, Portal, this game has a lot to improve upon, and boy has Valve struck gold with it! Some games have innovation, some games have amazing Graphics, this game combines the both and puts them into a puz...

Portal 1 was fun, but it didn't feel like a game. More of just an add-on, or an extra. Although, four years on it's respectably one of the most well known game releases of all time, I couldn't help but feel Valve had a lot of work to do if they were to squeeze a unique storyline out of this one. Portal 2 starts off where the last one ended (as sequels usually do). However Chell has been in s...

Portal 2

It’s a simple concept is Portal. You’re a test subject; you’re completing tests at the bequest of an all seeing AI. The tests entail getting out of various rooms. You’re even holding a gun. What’s this though? It doesn’t fire bullets? Then what does it fire? What’s a Portal? Valve took a risk when they released the original Portal in 2007. It was a far cry from other shooters, the first time...

Many times gaming companies attempt to combine many game-play styles into one game. This doesn't usually come out the way they want. Having said that I seriously enjoyed playing Portal 2 not only because it continued the story of the previous game, but because they kept the core game-play and style as they should have. Introducing simple yet complex tools the player can use creates an experienc...

I’d be a liar if I said I didn’t enter this review with any bias. The original Portal, a fraction of The Orange Box that quickly became the spawn of cultural memes and one of the most well-crafted games ever, was perhaps the best video game I had ever played. It was refined, it was entertaining, and it made the four year wait for a sequel absolutely painful. So with the announcement and deve...

Portal 2 is without a doubt one of the best games 2011 has to offer. If you're someone who isn't very keen on blowing up zombies or assassinating a Castro impersonator Portal 2 is the game for you. Portal 2 isn't any ordinary First Person Shooter ,it's the sort of shooter which is definitely going to get you to think. The story doesn't really play a very important role in the game but it does m...

On a cold October morning back in 2007, a puzzle game surfaced in the form of a bonus add-on to Valve's Orange Box which included Half-Life 2: Episode 2 and Team Fortress 2. The game managed to critically trump it's companions as it was praised continuously for it's unique gameplay elements and unconventional humor. For lack of better words; it basically owned the Orange Box and put the other g...

The original Portal was a unique twist on the first person shooter/adventure genre. Bundled with "The Orange Box", Portal used a unique blend of storytelling and puzzle solving to become a critical success. Portals successor, the aptly named Portal 2, introduces new characters to the series, intriguing new ways to solve puzzles, and a one of a kind, cross platform co op experience. All of the...

This new installment of cake, I mean portal 2 is out and it came with cream cheese frosting, I mean a vengeance. For those portal veterans out there who can get this joke this is a small part of the humor that you will pull from Portal 2. For those who don’t get it GO PICK UP PORTAL and you will understand the joke, and also help you understand some of the secret that valve has left behind in P...

Just in case you’ve never played the first Portal, let me give you some background information. A bunch of students from the DigiPen Institute of Technology created a game called Narbacular Drop. It’s main gameplay element featured the use of physics and movement of both the player and objects, through portals. Valve saw the potential of the game and hired the team to create what is now the...

Being that my username is HonestDragon, I have to be honest with you guys: I really, really, really enjoy the games that Valve produces. Everything from Half-Life to Team Fortress 2 to Left 4 Dead to Portal, I love these games. When I heard about Portal 2 coming out, I was excited. Especially with the trailer showing two new robot buddies that you get to play as for a co-op campaign. The first...

Exceptionally well-written gaming narratives are hard to come by, even these days. It takes a truly exceptional group of people to pull of a non-heavyhanded, gripping story in a medium that consists of tearing into aliens with a chainsaw. It takes an act of God to pull it off in a PUZZLE game. Valve is certainly one of God's greatest acts, somehow managing to pull of the impossible and create a...
